Well shit, I only have a Bachelor's. Looks like about four years and 302 interviews for me, assuming I can even get an interview.
PhD, 3000 applications, 10 interviews. 5 years and counting. Still working as a messenger.
Yeah, my dad has a PhD, plus many additional certificates and other levels of degrees, and exceptional grades throughout his elementary/high school/college years, and it's still hard for him to find work because we moved to Canada from Asia. Even though he got his PhD from England and studied for some time in Hawaii. It's hard, even for very qualified people.
just because you have a PhD, doesn't mean you'll get a job. Employers do look for more then JUST a degree, you know. Employers are also looking for experience. If you have a degree, but no experience, you can't be expected to be hired. It's just the way it goes.
